The plot is set on a group of bank robbers, who are both violent and successful, strangely getting away each time with an amount around the £60,000 mark, and often leaving behind cash in excess of this sum. The robbers are willing to kill their own team, to get away. As Jack Regan himself puts it after the first raid in the film: "I've never seen so many dead people". Armed with gold-plated Purdey shotguns, they evaded Regan and the Flying Squad for quite some time, before Regan finds encouragement from his Detective Chief Superintendent who was sent down for corruption because Jack wouldn't testify in court for him.

How could I, a film lover, miss out on Love Actually all of these years? Am I some sort of monster? Does my blood run ice cold through my veins? Nah, some movies just pass me by. Some movies don't peak my interest. This I thought was one of them. But on a lark, I decided why not give it go? It's that time of year after all. It's one of the gooiest rom-coms ever made. It's glistening in sugar coated caramel sauce. One look at this film, and you might catch diabetes. It's an ensemble cast of British starlets, in which multiple stories about finding love take place over the month of December. If think you've seen this movie before, you have.. there have been about three American versions of these, completely dumbed down for our audiences. That's why it's easy to be jaded around this material, and think of it as schmaltzy yule tide dreck. But it is written very well, and it's heart is in the right place. The love this movie represents seems sincere, and real. That, my friends, is the only way love in the movies truly works... and I'll give the movie a few more things. For one, it's the only movie in Hugh Grant's entire career where gives a good performance. That right there is a major plus. Also, the ending is timeless (God Only Knows is one of my favorite songs).

(mx) wrote: (from The Watermark 05/27/95) An interesting character study of a gay artist named Diego and a straight Communist college student named David who become unlikely friends during the potent political climate of Cuba in 1979. Diego is first introduced as a shallow sex-obsessed queen and gradually becomes more sympathetic and human as we learn of his passion for his artistic mentors and disdain for the Cuban Communist rule. David begins the film with a typically heterosexual aversion to gays, but befriends Diego to find out if he and his art are any threat to the Communist government. As the two exchange their political views, they develop a genuine friendship and mutual understanding of each other, even though they are enemies in many respects. Though it is anticlimactic, and not necessarily a ?must-see? film for gay American movie-goers, it is a well done work that shows the human side of politics that is all to frequently ignored. For viewers unfamiliar with Cuban history, much of the film may be lost because the ?system? in which Diego cannot function and which David wants to preserve is constantly referred to, but never actually shown. Cuban audiences already know their government, but Americans in many cases would be left guessing.

(jp) wrote: Where They Have to Take You In Maybe Marilyn Monroe would have had a better career if she'd been allowed to play the kind of bad girls Barbara Stanwyck made her name playing. Okay, and if she'd had someone really seriously working on her self esteem instead of taking advantage of it, but I've always felt Marilyn's psychological issues were complicated, possibly too complicated for the mental health treatment options of the time. I think serious concentration on her self esteem issues, however, would have enabled her to make fewer mistakes, and I think one of the great mistakes of her career was that she was pigeonholed as just another dizzy blonde. I'm not saying putting her in that slot was wrong, but I think she did her best work when she wasn't playing the Marilyn Monroe Character. She worked best when she played characters who were touched with, well, similar pasts to her own, ones that weren't all light and joy. Mae Doyle (Stanwyck) is returning home again after many years away. She doesn't want to, but she doesn't have much of a choice. She had been the mistress of a wealthy man, but he died, and though he left her money, his wife successfully challenged the will. The only home she has left is with her brother, Joe (Keith Andes, who looks a bit like Hugo Weaving). This means returning to the small fishing village (Monterey, in the movie, but somewhere on Staten Island in the play). When there, Mae becomes the focus of interest of several men. She finds herself strangely drawn to Earl Pfeiffer (Robert Ryan), but he's married. She lets herself agree to marry Jerry D'Amato (Paul Douglas), who is older and kinder. She doesn't think she will be the right wife for him, but at the same time, she thinks it's better than any other chance at life she has. Besides, her brother wants to marry his girlfriend, Peggy (Monroe), and he's worried that perhaps Peggy is listening a little too much to Mae. What he really ought to be worried about is that she'll listen to Mae when Mae talks about how attracted she is to Earl and why he's no good for her. Earl and Joe have an awful lot in common, and it isn't good. There's a scene where Peggy is looking at some of the other attractive men in the area, and Joe ropes a towel around her neck and basically play-strangles her until she gives all her attention to him. And it doesn't seem that playful. Earl, when talking about the kind of woman he'd stay with, suggests throwing all women at the ceiling and living with whichever one sticks to it. That's odd and troubling phrasing. Mae clearly loves Earl quite a lot, but he still doesn't treat her very well. He disparages her feelings. He has no respect for her intelligence, not that the film gives us a lot to go on about how much she has. He loves that she looks like Barbara Stanwyck and has Barbara Stanwyck's gift for banter and toughness, but how long would that last? Mae's biggest problem is that there is no real way out for her. No matter how intelligent she may or may not be, she definitely isn't educated. She's a girl from a fishing town, where someone can unironically say that someone else is "in the movie business" because he runs the projector at the theatre. She's tired of marriage after a year, no matter how much she loves her daughter, but when she came back home, she knew she wouldn't have much else to do with the rest of her life. She isn't trained to have a job. She isn't educated--if she has more than a high school diploma, that would be surprising for a woman from her time and background. She can spend the rest of her life gutting fish, but that doesn't hold much appeal, either. She gets married, because she doesn't know what else there is for a woman like her to do. Even though she knows she's going to hurt Jerry, she feels she has no option left. At least Jerry is kind to her, which is rare for the men in her life. This is one of those movies that made me glad I don't actually live in the era in which they were made. We see Mae's wedding reception, and they're handing out cigars. The smoke is so thick that I initially thought we were watching a flashback. The edges of the picture are fuzzy and indistinct, because there's so much smoke. While I don't think anyone would quite approve of Earl--or Jerry--beating Mae, it is clear that everyone seems to think that what Mae wants isn't as important as what the men in her life want. Joe is her younger brother, but he's in charge of the household. She probably sees that the way he's treating Peggy is worrying, but she wouldn't say anything, because she's lived her whole life believing that it's just how men treat women. True, we don't know anything about her relationship with the married politician, but we know that it was an unequal relationship, and she ended it no better off than she'd started. She doesn't love her old hometown, but she doesn't really know anything else.
